Cameroon is set to gain its third mobile network later this month, when Set'Mobile launches its services.
The network, founded by local footballer, Samuel Eto'o and named after his initials, started selling SIM cards last week and has already sold out with 50,000 cards distributed.
The network will be activated on January 21, which is also the opening day of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
The country currently has two mobile networks, MTN and Orange. According to figures from the Mobile World, the country ended last year with an estimated 9.4 million customers, representing a population penetration level of just 47%.
